Dispose of all Hazardous Materials Safely

Explosive and flammable material disposal

There was a HAZMAT fire in the scrap metal pile at the Davis Road tip this week. Thanks to the quick response from Witchcliffe Volunteer Fire Brigade and Margaret River Volunteer Fire & Rescue Service, it was swiftly contained and controlled!

The cause of the fire was considered unidentifiable and accidental, but it could have been triggered by something like a gas bottle or batteries being mistakenly thrown in. This serves as a timely reminder for everyone to ensure proper disposal of explosive and flammable materials.
